You never will guess where this is

Mill Creek Falls

Some time ago, while walking around Rensselaer, I heard loud running water near the sluggish-looking Mill Creek. Peeking through the trees, I discovered the top of what appeared to be a substantial waterfall. My few later half-hearted attempts to find a vantage point from which to view the entire falls were not successful.

Recently, I told a friend about the falls. The partial views we found left us unsatisfied, so we tried again to find a site from which we could get a fuller view. As the photo above depicts, we were successful. The bad news is that I cannot disclose its location, as it is on private property whose owner was gracious enough to invite us on in response to our questions.

Alas, the best vantage point accessible to the public for viewing the falls is on High Street just off Third Avenue. This location lacks both a safe place to stand and a full view of the falls. It would be great if someone could find a way to make this gem more accessible to the public.
